Zoom Stream Sharing (watch party) is not supported

The Swank streaming platform does not currently support playback of films via screen sharing platforms such as Zoom Meetings. The security of the platform is designed to prevent functional playback in this manner as we are unable to ensure that the audience of a film being shown via screen share is one covered by our agreements and rights.

For virtual classrooms and events, we recommend that facilitator provide each viewer with a link to the film and use Zoom simultaneously to discuss what every student is watching on their own device.

As a side note, if you are attempting to show a film via screen share, it is the audience that experiences disruption not the presenter. Just because playback appears smooth on the teacher’s end, does not mean that it is for the students.
